PBS American Experience – The Movement and the Madman (2023)
English | Documentary | Size: 1.80 GB

The MOVEMENT and the “MADMAN” shows how two antiwar protests in the fall of 1969 – the largest the country had ever seen – caused President Nixon to cancel his plans for a massive escalation of the U.S. war in Vietnam, including threats to use nuclear weapons. At the time, protestors had no idea what they had prevented and how many lives they had saved.
Focusing on the grassroots October 15th “Moratorium” – a one-day national strike against the war by two million Americans – and on the dramatic November 15th “March Against Death”, followed by the enormous “Mobilization” antiwar rally in Washington, D.C., the film reveals how these protests undermined what Nixon called his “Madman” strategy to cripple North Vietnam, including the possible use of nuclear weapons.
Told as a political thriller, the film is a David-and-Goliath tale that engages viewers in a you-are-there experience with insider accounts from movement leaders, Nixon administration officials, including three men who worked directly with Kissinger on Nixon’s “madman” plans, historians, and others, illustrated with dynamic archival footage.
